Aaah, hollywood…

Often, the people in control of the media tend to be… conservative. Knowing that there’s no objective way to spot a potential ‘hit’ amongst piles of hopeful submissions, they instead gravitate towards milking returns on known quantities. This is why, after Twilight became such a huge success, all book publishers everywhere started publishing vampire romance novels. This is also why sequel movies are so common.

So it comes as no suprise that this clip has apparently garnered $30-million to be produced as a full-length movie. Somewhere, somebody heard about District 9 and decided that ‘give a non-American director $30-odd-million to produce an alien-themed movie based on a short film of theirs’ was the new ‘hit’ formula. I suspect that we will now see a flood of such movies.
